April 22 - Walpole: from 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm, the Walpole Peace and Justice Group will hold a tax day rally as part of the GDAMS, calling for a reduction in military spending and a redirection of those funds to human services. A 40 foot budget banner will be displayed, showing where the Federal discretionary budget is spent today. The 2020 federal budget as proposed by the President transfers tens of billions of dollars from education, affordable housing, climate protection, medical care, hunger assistance, and social security directly to the military budget. The People’s Budget in Congress as a positive alternative.
The vigil will be at the Walpole Common on the corner of Main and West Streets. People are invited to attend for all or any part of the scheduled time. There will be signs available, in addition to the budget banner, or you may wish to bring your own sign. For more info contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
